        AlmayerÕs Folly: a Story of an Eastern River.

      - London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1895. 8vo, 272pp. Original green cloth, gilt-stamped on backstrip, top edge gilt. Covers a bit rubbed and stained, corners worn, approx. 26 pp. show small repairs to inside edge not affecting text block. Quarter dark green morocco slipcase. First edition, first issue, of ConradÕs first book. A significant association copy commemorating the literary and personal relationship of Joseph Conrad and Edward Garnett. By urging T. Fisher Unwin to publish ConradÕs first book, AlmayerÕs Folly, Garnett had launched ConradÕs career and the two subsequently became close friends. This copy marks the beginning of that friendship although interestingly Garnett inscribed it ÒE libris Edward GarnettÓ and gave it to Dr. Arthur Maude who also signed in pencil. Pasted in the front is the final page of a letter in ConradÕs hand in pencil. A few pencil notes in the text could be Garnett or more likely by Maude. We recently had GarnettÕs copy of Tales of Unrest, from a different collection. Wise, Ashley Library, Vol. 1, p. 231. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Studien über Hysterie

      Leipzig & Vienna: Franz Deuticke, 1895. <p>Beginning of Psychoanalysis</p><p>Freud, Sigmund (1856-1939) and Josef Breuer (1842-1925). Studien über Hysterie. [6], 269pp. Leipzig & Vienna: Franz Deuticke, 1895. Half morocco ca. 1895, extremities and corners slightly rubbed; preserved in cloth drop-back box. Fine.</p><p>First Edition. Studies in Hysteria, which gives the first detailed account of the free-association method, is customarily regarded as the starting-point of psychoanalysis. Breuer had discovered the "cathartic" method of curing hysteria in the early 1880s while treating the patient who would later be immortalized as "Anna O."; this patient, who exhibited a myriad of severe hysterical symptoms, found that the symptoms would disappear when she told Breuer the details of their onset. (Jones gives "Anna O.," whose real name was Bertha Pappenheim, a large share of the credit for inventing what she called the "talking cure.") Freud learned of this interesting case from Breuer shortly after its termination in June 1882; it made a strong impression on him, and a few years later he began using a combination of hypnosis and the cathartic method in his own neurological practice. From this Freud gradually developed the method of free association, in which the patient was encouraged to say whatever came into his mind however "nonsensical" or "irrelevant," since Freud believed that the patient&#39;s statements provided clues about the network of associations already established in his mind, and would thus lead the therapist to the source of the patient&#39;s neurosis. "It was through devising the new method that Freud was enabled to penetrate into the previously unknown realm of the unconscious proper and to make the profound discoveries with which his name is imperishably associated" (Jones, Life and Work of Sigmund Freud, I, p. 265).

        TRILBY (In Original PUBLISHER&#39;S PRINTED DUST JACKET)

      London: Osgood, McIlvaine, 1895. Du Maurier, George. TRILBY. A Novel. London: Osgood, McIlvaine, 1895. 141 illustrations by the author including frontispiece. FIRST ENGLISH ONE-VOLUME EDITION AND FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION preceded only by the 1894 non-illustrated three-volume first edition which is rarely seen today. A FINE copy (gilt blazing bright) in a VERY GOOD example of the extremely uncommon ORIGINAL PUBLISHER&#39;S PRINTED DUSTJACKET which is a little chipped along the bottom edge, and at two small points near the top. But there is no loss to any of the lettering or the design. Two very small pieces of archival tape can be found on the verso of the DJ. Du Maurier (1834-1896) was one of the most successful illustrators of the last half of the Victorian era, the much acclaimed illustrator for "Punch" and other popular publications. Toward the end of his life, at the urging of Henry James, he produced three novels, the most extraordinarily successful of which was TRILBY which begat hysterical Trilby-mania (the Trilby hat changed men&#39;s fashion, it became the name of a town in Florida) and introduced the character of SVENGALI, the evil mesmerist who hypnotizes the lovely Trilby into becoming a world renown diva through his dark hypnotic talents (thus serving as the inspiration for Gaston Leroux&#39;s PHANTOM OF THE OPERA). This is the novel for which Du Maurier will forever be remembered, a book which made hypnotism just as much a part of our modern culture as Svengali has become part of the English Language as the descriptor of anyone who manipulates another person in a sinister fashion through the force of mesmerizing persuasion. The survival of this dustjacket seems to us to be of equal rarity to the survival of Thomas Hardy&#39;s JUDE THE OBSCURE which was also published in a six-shilling single volume by Osgood, McIlvaine in November of this very same year. . First Edition. Fine/Very Good.

        Collected Works

      New York: Appleton and Company 1895-, 1896. Fifteen volumes, octavo, engraved plates, numerous other diagrams and illustrations throughout, maps and charts (some folding); spines of a few volumes slightly marked but over all a fine set in publisher&#39;s half morocco with marbled boards, top edge gilt. The works of Darwin, edited by his son Francis. A handsome set of the collected works of Charles Darwin in the original uniform binding, including his masterpiece On the Origin of Species and a number of equally important works including his journal of the Beagle voyage. The set was published some 13 years after the great naturalist&#39;s death, and reflects widespread popular interest in natural history and the theory of evolution. Taken together, Darwin&#39;s works are a monument to a lifetime of painstaking research which began with his now legendary journey of discovery aboard the Beagle between 1831 and1836. The set includes relatively uncommon works such as The Power of Movement in Plants and The Structure and Distribution of Coral Reefs, while several of the volumes relate to the work on evolution that he conducted at his country estate Down House, including his famous decades-long experiment with earthworms and their role in the regeneration of soil. The set also includes two biographical volumes, The Life and Letters of Charles Darwin, both featuring striking portrait frontispieces of Darwin in advancing years. The biographical volumes were edited by Darwin&#39;s son Francis and include hundreds of letters exchanged between the great naturalist and Asa Grey, Joseph Hooker, Alfred Russel Wallace, Thomas Huxley, Robert FitzRoy and other prominent individuals of the era. A full listing of the titles is available upon request.

        Dundee, Its Quaint and Historic Buildings

      George Petrie Dundee 1895. Binding: Hardback. FREE UK SHIPPING. Signed by author. An extremely large book, weighing just under 10 kg. Measurements 465 mm by roughly 370 mm, and 80 mm thick. This is described as number 218 of the "small paper impression", of which 327 were printed. Illustrations are from drawings made by William Gibb . The illustrations include maps and plans as well as many views of Dundee. In all there are 59 illustrations; each illustration is accompanied by a page or two of description and discussion. Thus this is no mere picture book, but a fascinating account of the history of Dundee and its buildings. Condition: The book still has its maroon coloured wrapper, but this is in rather poor condition, being rolled, creased and with tears and loss to the top and bottom of the spine section. The book itself however is in very good condition, being sound and clean. Binding is half leather, although the leather is very worn at corners and edges. The gilt titles to the front board and spine are still bright. Internally, the decorative front endpapers are in good condition save a little creasing at one corner. There is some age tanning, soiling or foxing to the extremes of the page margins, but otherwise the pages are clean and unstained. The rear end papers are also in good condition, although there is a little damage to the top edge of the inside of the back board (not affecting the end papers themselves). Detailed photographs available on request. Overall Very Good.

        Autograph musical quotation signed ("Massenet") from Manon

      Small quarto, 160 x 180 mm. 4 measures from Act III dated Paris, 1895, notated in ink. On paper with "Manon" within decorative cartouche printed in sepia. Inscribed to the opera singer "Mademoiselle Alma Dalma à une charmante artiste." Together with a small broadside printed in sepia advertising the published edition. Browned, left edge slightly defective from former mount, just affecting quotation. . "[Massenet] was the most prolific and successful composer of opera in France at the end of the 19th century and into the beginning of the 20th..." "... Begun in March 1882, Manon was conceived as an opéra-comique with some speech over music and a more continuous and integrated structure than usual. It called for some 18th-century pastiche and a more intimate manner. It was completed later that year, and although Massenet visited Prévost&#146;s own rooms in The Hague as a spur to inspiration, not much was actually written there. Its première at the Opéra-Comique in January 1884 launched the opera on a dazzling international career and confirmed Massenet&#146;s now unchallenged position as the leading opera composer of his generation in France. Its popularity has never dimmed. Wealth and honours now flowed, so that Massenet was able to handle his career henceforth with something of the detachment, if not quite the fastidiousness, that we associate with Verdi, picking his librettists, his theatres and his singers with care." Hugh Macdonald et al in Grove online

        Mariana: An Original Drama in Three Acts and an Epilogue [Signed/Firmado]

      Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1895. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first American edition, first printing, in the Publisher&#39;s original light blue cloth (some spotting to the cloth, light rubs to the spine ends and board corners), SIGNED BY JOSE ECHEGARAY on the title page. Considered to be one of Echegaray&#39;s best works, "Mariana" presents a woman who, abandoned by her mother a man, develops a desire to humiliate men and to exact revenge upon them. Firmly established as one of Spain&#39;s leading dramatists as the 19th Century drew to a close, Echegaray won the 1904 Nobel Prize in Literature (which he shared with France&#39;s Frederic Mistral) "in recognition of the numerous and brilliant compositions which, in an individual and original manner, have revived the great traditions of the Spanish drama", making him the first Spaniard to win the Prize. First edition copies of Mariana in English translation are quite far from being common. Copies of Echegaray&#39;s works signed by him are quite difficult to find in any language, and signed copies of his work are especially scarce when in English translation. A Very Good copy, SIGNED BY JOSE ECHEGARAY. EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE.
